Summary of Meeting:
Obesity remains among the most daunting health problems facing the developed world. Despite the rising prevalence of obesity, the biological systems that serve to match caloric intake to caloric expenditure are robust and make permanent weight loss difficult to achieve. Current research points to a multitude of factors that contribute to this regulation. Identifying the processes that are most amenable for therapeutic intervention is a crucial research goal. To that end, this conference will focus on the latest work identifying novel genes, hormones and signaling cascades that regulate energy balance. The program will also emphasize a wide range of new strategies for using this new information to produce safe and effective therapies to prevent or treat obesity.
